Tanzania photo-safari, Oct 2012
On our last full day in Arusha, we visited the Ng'iresi Village, ten or so kilometers above Arusha on the slopes of Mount Meru.

Path through the coffee and banana plantations; they mix the plants up together for agronomic reasons.
Coffee beans on the hoof, so to speak

Siv was immediately volunteered by the geography and english teacher to take an english class for a few minutes.
Among even this huge class, she is right at home.
Saying goodbye to the English teacher and assistant headmaster, who said he had learned a lot in a short time.
